Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon

Not quite content to hold the world record for the thinnest tourbillon, Bulgari has reduced the Octo Finissimo Tourbillon to its bare bones in a skeletonised version of the timepiece. Its 253-part movement measures a minuscule 32.6mm wide and 1.95mm thick, with a flying tourbillon that spins on ball bearings to reduce height and offer a secure, low-wear setting from the case back.

Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Panorama Date

For those wanting a clean and classic timepiece, Glashütte Original’s Senator Excellence Panorama Date is the one to have. The softly rounded aperture that displays the date integrates the indication in an elegant manner, while its deep black printed numerals make the time completely legible against its ivory-coloured dial.

Breitling Colt Skyracer

Once more Breitling is drawing the full attention of true-blue aviators or those into extreme sports with this tough timepiece. The Colt Skyracer features the brand’s new Breitlight carbon case, which promises comfort, durability and lightness, and a thermo-compensated Superquartz movement that guarantees extreme accuracy. If that’s not compelling enough, this rugged piece also has a battery life of up to eight years. 

Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matte Ceramic

The rebellious member of the Tag Heuer family has arrived. Going fully black, skeletonised, completely ceramic (except for the movement), and with a more modern design overall, this year’s version of the Carrera Heuer-01 is unlike any of its brethren. At the heart of the piece, however, is the same powerhouse movement—the Tag calibre 01, a self-winding chronograph with a 50-hour power reserve.

Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph

This model picks up from the Visionnaire DTZ, displaying the indications centrally with concentric counters. It places the hour and minute hands along the circumference of the dial, and the complication in the centre. As a result, the time is very easy to read, in contrast to conventional chronographs. Who says complications always need to be complicated?
